Doug Cummings on "Howl’s Moving Castle"

from filmjourney…

I find the mystery in Miyazaki’s films to be one of their greatest pleasures, expanding their worlds with each viewer’s imagination. When I was a kid, I loved to scratch my head. Not that Miyazaki crafts puzzling films; his cinema is highly accessible and entertaining at any age, yet he’s a filmmaker who also appreciates how a few unanswered questions in the right places can enrich a fantasy story.

    Bono was a bit hoarse, but it worked anyway and the jokes were funny. I just couldn’t believe they cut off Vertigo!!

    I had classes this morning, but I stayed up. It was great when they played music, or talked a little. If O’Brien wants U2 again he should rent out an hour of TV and present U2: The Infomercial. During “Vertigo”, was Bono showing off a new vibrato technique or was it merely feedback?

    I stayed up all night waiting to see that show. I thought Bono sounded a little hoarse… and the jokes were a little corny, but I was still THRILLED to be watching them… I’d be even more thrilled if it wasn’t through my TV. (a girl can dream!)
